Same thing. I installled OpenIV and GIMS, but I just don't know what files to open in openiv, I don't understand structure of the game.

Download an existing map mod and look at what files it changes and how it changes them. How much do you know about modding any other games?
Do you know what 3dsmax is? You'll need that to make the 3d objects and an image program like photoshop or g.i.m.p or paint.net (not mspaint) for resizing and making textures (or just use original GTA textures while learning how to use 3dsmax).
Do you know what textures are? Do you know how to install existing map mods?

Ok, add GIMS to your 3dsmax install and download OpenIV too.
Do you have a backup unmodded copy of GTAIV+EFLC? You should do that before doing any modding. (it's a standard thing to do)
Next you should download some mods like a few of stilldre's racetracks to see what files are edited and how to mod IV.
What are you able to model in 3dsmax? If you could make a basic chunk of land or something to use as your first added object.

You'll need to make a folder to contain the development of your new object.

Look at GTARandom's tutorial. I used to not know how to map mod. Now I have modded cities in GTA IV off shore from Liberty City that can rival the Liberty City itself. (except that I don't have traffic). GTARandom's tutorial is very clear, and it is also tempting to think that it is difficult to understand. But work out the steps and anyone can mod. smile.gif
